Well, it's been a while, and we've made changes!

Has it really been two years since I've posted here???  So much has happened and changed since my last post.  The biggest change being we bought a home in Florida!!
Yep, that's right, we moved to Florida! We sold the farm and moved over 900 miles away - to a warmer climate and no snow. Ok, that's not totally true - there was one day where some snow fell from the sky last month, but it melted as soon as it hit the ground. And there was two mornings that we woke up to frost on our cars, but today it was 86 degrees so a couple days of frost is worth bearing!

I plan to be back to blogging regularly soon, but for now I'll share one of the first pics I took when we arrived here in August of 2015.  Later, I'll share details of how the move came to be (totally God's doing and lots of answered prayers.

This is actually our BACK yard, but our FRONT door.  And what you don't see is behind where I stood to take this pic, a canal that is connected to a local lake.  To the left, where that door is opened, is where our driveway is.  That fence is now gone.  One day on a local sale group, posted free if they remove it, and boom, fence gone. It was wonderful!
Over the next few days I will be sharing some of our current and upcoming projects, before and after pics, and any new adventures we fall into.
OH, and some things that never change - I still have five chickens. Bantam Chocolate Orps.  We'll be adding bees soon, and we're making plans for raised beds.
So stay tuned, there's more to come!


  1. Oh noooo..the alligator fence is you gonna protect yourselves?

    1. The fence was in bad disrepair and wouldn't have protected us from any gators that truly wanted to be in our yard. We are planning to replace the fence with privacy fencing soon, tho!
